Subject Re: Question on configuring Apache Cassandra with LDAP
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2017 22:14:10 GMT
That is in fact my linked WIP branch, and I can confirm progress was stalled just to other
priorities being set!
It got to the point (in draft form) where authentication was working, but still need to work
on extending IRoleManager.

I will say this, while I initially started using the Apache LDAP API, which is what’s present
in that linked branch, I then started playing with UnboundID and Ldaptive (you can find that
sandbox here: https://github.com/lqid/ldap-sandbox), which I found much easier to work with.

Having said all that, I believe DataStax are in fact using the Apache LDAP API, so clearly
it is robust enough…
I’d love to start this back up to be honest, but business has priorities some very different
things.
However, this has been a good reminder that I should finish what I started, so thanks for
that! ;)

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions for me!

Kindest regards,
Daniel
